Mall Rats

blazer- G'Will
leotard- thrifted
beaded shorts- Urban Outfitters $10
shoes- Salvatore Ferragamo


This week marked the grand re-opening of our local mall. Well, only part of our mall had to re-open. You see, last year it was half burnt down by this guy:


Don't worry, no one was hurt and he didn't burn any of the "good stores." Urban Outfitters, Nordstroms, Macys, JCP's, Eff 21, M.A.C., H&M, Sephora, Hot Topic, and the food court were all untouched. He did however cause $55 million dollars in damage and put a sh*t ton of people out of work.  He also put our Westfield on the map! This story made national headlines. Watch as hard hitting local news 10 analyze his Facebook page for signs of a troubled man. "Facebook Page Unveils Piggee's Personality" My favorite part is how they call him "Mr. Piggee" as in "piggy" guess it is pronounced "pi-jay."

So of course when I met my uncle for lunch at the mall this weekend my thrifting self had no idea the grand reopening was going on. Let's just say the place was infested with mall rats. There was also live entertainment! A DJ in one place, a banjo in another, and this lady:


a human statue wow! 

The best part by far were the 3 pairs of Urban Outfitter shorts I scored for 10 dollars each. They had 50% off all clearance. My uncle was nice enough to walk in and out of every store with me as I examined all shoes, and things Hello Kitty.


Mr. Piggee will be serving 15 years for his successful arson attempt. He was a troubled man, on prozac and oxycontin when he did the deed. He did apologize in court however, which is nice. I think they slapped some more years on to his sentence after that for trying to burn his own grandmother's house. He says when he gets out he wants to pay everyone back for the damage. Aww que bonito.


Q. What's wrong with me this tree?

A. My dad hired some "ex-con's" to do some yard work. They trimmed the bottom 5 feet of the tree off LOL! They also smoked la mota (mary jane) in our driveway. 

Thanks for listening to this exciting tale of my oh so adventurous life,

  9. Thats ridiculous I hope he has to pay back all that money for the rest of his life! but Uhm I wan those shorts!

  10. LOL! Wow, that's quite a story. But in all honesty, they really should have arrested his doctors (or whoever sold that crap to him) for prescribing this man these drugs. Everybody knows Prozac makes you cuckoo for cocoa puffs. It's no wonder the suicide rates while on legal drugs are so high...poor people :(

    ANYWAY...lol. This outfit is SOOO FAB! Everything here looks fantastic on you. Judging by the pretty smile on your face, I'm sure you already knew that ;)

    "haha you dumb bastard, it's not a schooner, it's a sailboat" I have no clue why that makes me crack up so much

  25. The color coordination is so great!! And if those shorts go missing, it means they're on my legs <3
    Thanks for visiting ze blog and commenting! I love looking at yours!

  26. I'm sure it was hard for a lot of women (besides the business owners) to imagine the mall being completely consumed by that fire... especially since some people practically live there. I guess the man didn't really have a reason for doing that. He must've just been deranged. I would be interested to know if he did actually have a somewhat sane reason to.

    Thanks for leaving those nice comments! I love the lining on those shorts!
